The knowledge we gained by measuring my Olympic horse was a valuable addition to the opinions of my trainer. Also after the Championship I ride with the Caroliens advise in the back of my head.
The most important thing to me is the fact that you are sure that your horse is fit enough to responsibly compete in a race. It increases my confidence! By monitoring your horse and perform measurements you know what’s going on and how your horse is feeling.
Due to these new insights I have improves and optimized the training of sport horses. The program has served me well, because I was able to decide how to train but was also equipped with very valuable advice on the endurance of my horse.
Without the pointed opinions of Carolien it would have taken me much longer. The measurements gave me the confirmation and the confidence that Wim was ready for certain exercises
Very educational and applicable course in all disciplines and all levels. I was able to convert my humane knowledge to the concept of horse training.
Inspirational course with important information to teach you how to reach optimal performance in a horse. Useful lessons, with a clear translation to daily practice!
I found it all very interesting. I sat on the edge of my seat the entire time! It has motivated me to want to learn much more about this. I found sad when the training was over. Very interesting and practical. In a clear but scientific way.
